Rovio’s hugely popular franchise, Angry Birds, has already gotten so many people hooked across multiple platforms, that even a movie has been made out of it – Rio. Well, the recently launched BlackBerry PlayBook is considered to be “boring” – at least until Angry Birds rolls out for it, right? According to Research In Motion (RIM), Angry Birds will be appearing on the PlayBook tablet in the near future.
It is interesting to note that Rovio intends to list the company on Nasdaq in five years’ time, but the big question is this – will the franchise be able to last that long before its popularity wanes?
The creator of Angry Birds did mention before that they intend to make the franchise a Mario equivalent, but we do not think that this will happen since Rovio’s offering fails to engage the gamer at depths that Mario and his adventures do.
With Angry Birds debuting there, will it make the PlayBook less of an enterprise machine, or is it just a mere distraction for those who are in suits and attend corporate meetings all day long?
